Senior Cricket bat
Select Grade 3 English Willow
Mid to High Sweet spot
Re-designed structurally and cosmetically for the 2020/21 season, the MAAX is sure to grab the attention of any cricketer. With a mid-to-high sweet spot, large edges and feather-light pick up, this bat will ensure you make MAAXimum ground on your shots!
SWEET SPOT POSITION = Mid to High: A hybrid setup that allows some slight favourability towards players who like to hit square of the wicket but still want the benefits of a mid sweet spot. A slightly higher sweet spot brings the bulk of the willow towards the hands allowing for players to consider going for an extra ounce of bat weight. Smash a front foot pull-shot with one of these to strike fear in the opposition.
PREPARATION = Pre-Prepared: This cricket bat has been both pressed and had extratec applied at its factory of origin. However, it still needs to go through the full hand knocking-in process. While this cricket bat sadly isn't ready for use against leather balls just yet, the preparation process is well on its way and can be completed easily.
BOW = Standard: The regular bow found in the majority of modern cricket bats which gets your hands slightly ahead of the ball for ease of stroke play. It also helps the cricket bat feel more aggressive.
EDGES = Big: These edges are heading close to the magic 40mm mark. Big edges make for a forgiving and powerful cricket bat with a wider sweet spot. Please be aware that junior bats can still have big edges but they will be relative to 40mm due to their size.
SPINE HEIGHT = Medium: Often combined with big edges to create a forgiving bat with an extra wide hitting zone which still rewards striking the blade out of the very middle.
PROFILE SHAPE = Slightly Scalloped: A small amount of scalloping is seen in a very large amount of cricket bats. The goal is to save weight while still making the sweet spot as wide as possible. Even very high quality bats can contain a small amount of scalloping in order to reduce their weight.
FACE = Curved: The traditional curved style of bat face has many important benefits. The rounded face provides a refined direction of power throughout the hitting zone & also allows more flexibility for players keen to work the ball with their wrists.
HANDLE TYPE = Semi-Oval: A happy medium that brings the benefits of both oval & round handles. This shape aids alignment, slightly weakens the bottom hand for more controlled stroke play and still allows for creative use of the bottom hand.
